Arbroath face a trip to East Fife at Bayview Stadium on Saturday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Red Lichties will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was earlier this season, with Arbroath inflicting a narrow 0 - 1 defeat upon the Fifers in a Scottish Division Two match.

Recent respective form guides
East Fife's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Fifers have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.
Arbroath's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Red Lichties have hit 7 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.
East Fife are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 34 points from 31 matches. Arbroath are stuck down in the relegation zone of Bells Scottish Division Two with a return of just 33 points from their 31 games thus far.
